| It looks like a heart attack
A young mover and shaker in New York town staggers into a restaurant only half dressed and promptly collapses on the floor. Of course the restaurant is concerned with him eating any of their food and the liability issues.

All roads to a solution lead to Daniel Hugh Kelly, a billionaire Donald Trump like figure who might have had Mr. Mover and Shaker's cocktail spiked with Viagra. And the woman he was having an affair with do the rest.

That woman is Julia Roberts and at the time she and Benjamin Bratt were an item. Bratt's character Ray Curtis can occasionally be one self righteous prig and here Roberts finds him easy prey to seduce. On the witness stand Bratt gets taken down a peg by the defense when this is brought out. And Roberts herself has her character and possible guilt brought into the open.

Not the best story except as a vehicle for Julia Roberts and no one could blame Bratt for yielding in this instance.
